This is an updated version of a diary entry I wrote in Greece, during late 2016 after leaving Eden.  Early start today! I’m off to Hydra to stay with friends of the family. Last night I spoke with Raf about my plans for the next chapter, and he seemed intrigued. We are meeting up next…

I found it very hard to focus on writing this. My phone has been going all day and I feel completely overwhelmed by everything that has happened since my final appearance on Eden: Paradise Lost aired last night. Overwhelmed in a very positive way, because the support that Raph and I are receiving is unbelievable…
